This is one of my favorite Italian resturants. The food is as close to homemade as you can get and the wine list is impressive. From the checkered table cloths to the friendly staff you will enjoy a great meal in a great setting. Love the Italian mood music. We will be back and will recommend to friends..

The food here is excellent and comes in very large portions which make it best for large groups. The salads are good and so is the pasta. The noise level is energetic which takes away a little from the kitschy atmosphere. You wont go away hungry.

We ordered Buca to go and even with the $10 off coupon we had it was still extremely expensive. The food was excellent though so can't really complain too much. If you want to dip your bread, don't forget to ask for the oil and parmesan cheese. It was free, but I had to ask for it.

JMJ Haven't been here in awhile and the thought of abundant Italian food filling my mouth made me decide to get a group together and enjoy. Enjoy we did! The service was excellent, especially the initial host who was very patient and informative. Our wait staff worked hard to fill our requests, and sang their special Birthday song very well!... More

I have been to other Buca di Beppo's (in Southern California) and they were excellent. We were very disappointed that this one was not good at all. I only had a few bites of my meal and took the rest home. The next day I added a lot of spices and cheese and it was finally edible. There were not... More

As authentic as you can get! Reminds me of days long ago in Grandma and Grandpa's basement every Sunday afternoon. I expect to kick Grandpa's gallon of wine on the floor next to him when I get up from the table. Served family style, every selection is blissfully delicious! You won't be disappointed!

Always a favorite when several siblings and their families are in town. Good selection and excellent service. We tend to go early or off hours to avoid the rush.

Good food, but don't go with just 2 people. The servings are so large that everything needs to be shared. The wait staff were friendly and accommodating. Had a large group and all the suggestions really work great.

We came with the family including out of town visitors. It was always one of my favorite places. We had reservations for 10 people at 7 pm and still had to wait at least 10 minutes for a table. This is not a place to go to if you want to have a quiet conversation or get to know someone... More
